3. Cinco de Mayo Hike - Island Ford

This is their second of 5 hikes to celebrate Mexico's Cinco de Mayo! Join them on one of them, two of them, or all of them if you're up for the challenge! Wear some bright colors and get into the spirit of the day! They'll take a break between hikes 3 and 4 to have a Mexican lunch at Tijuana Joe's on Roswell Road (Sandy Springs). Lunch will take place around 2 pm. Join us! They'll take this hike at a brisk pace, therefore, it is NOT a hike for beginners who can't maintain that pace for 2 hours (with few stops). Keep in mind that the terrain throughout this hike is often hilly, with rocks and roots that can trip up inexperienced hikers. They'll start at the Hewlett Pond parking lot, about .6 miles from the park entrance.

It'll start promptly at 10:00 am, so arrive at least 10 minutes early to meet everyone before they start, and pay for your parking pass if you don't have an annual pass. There's a parking fee of $5.00 in this park which can be paid for in advance online.
